george bush and obama has cut the red tape. that is not something that republicans thought was possible at the federal level. >> and how big a government does a big country need? how big a government does staten island need when it is under water tonight? it needs a bigger government and it needs the american government in there. one of the things, new york city has a lot of government. there are 60 departments in the city. and the fact of the matter is the irony is that all of this government replaces a lot of freedom. and who is going to have a say in that government. how will be things be distributed in the hard of the argument? the question is it going to be there for folks that are poor and on medicaid. it is about who would benefit? >> the thing that has happened that has been painful is that fema seems to be working better than it did under george bush and obama has cut the red tape. that is not something that republicans thought was possible at the federal level. >> and how big a government does a big country need? how big a government does staten island need when it is under wa
that was think difference between al gore and george w. bush. and if republicans are not going to try to make an issue to try to deelectoralize president obama, then we have a flood here. >> jennifer: all right. thank you so much david. clearly the electoral vote looks great. the popular vote, not so much and especially if these blue voters in new jersey and new york aren't able to get to the polls, that means progressives where every you have got to vote. your vote really does matter why you ask? because the right-wing will fight his agenda at every turn. losing the popular vote gives them actually a shred of legitimacy, a leg to stand on and it's not going to matter to fox news that george bush lost the popular vote back in 2000 so bottom line even if you are in the deepest blue or deepest red, get to the polls! send in your ballots! your vote absolutely matters if you care about the president's ability to carry out his promises in his sec term. coming up bipartisan gets a much-needed shot in the arm. president obama visits new jersey with my new favorite governor, c
press secretary under president george w. bush. hello to both of you. >> your setup there looks fantastic. democracy plaza looks great. >> i wish you were here to see it. they have been working so hard on this. i could go on an on. we have details to get to. people ice skating. it's just cool. but let's talk about a couple of different ideas here, karen, with you. two respected political analysts have widely divergent predictions for the election. nate silver gives the president an 84% chance of winning and says he'll get 305 electoral votes. flip side mitt romney will be winning with 315 electoral votes. does anyone know what's going to happen? >> no, of course not. this is why i love politics. and this is why i love the pollsters. they try to apply science and data that predict. we're talk about human beings. and human behavior is unpredictable. we can have a sense of what we think is going to happen. the numbers i've been looking at are some of the early vote numbers. for example if you look at some of of these battle ground states and the number of people who have already vo
to the george bush era, and i am not -- i was extremely pessimistic when george bush got re-elected. as a matter of fact, one of the headlines in the british press said how can america be so stupid? now, if mitt romney and paul ryan win the election, i think the headlines will be the same. host: anderson, let's get back to the economy. talk to me about signs that you see -- signs that make you optimistic in brooklyn. talk to me about the housing -- caller: well, as a matter of fact, i'm glad you mentioned brooklyn, because yesterday i was down at flatbush, atlantic avenue, and that, what do you call it, the barclays center, where the home of the brooklyn nets will be, there is a lot of economic activity. and this economic activity started with metrotech, which was on flatbush avenue, and it went on to and is spread ago cross downtown brooklyn. it's becoming to look like upper manhattan, midtown. and, you know, you see people's enthusiasm bringing these businesses in the area, and i work in manhattan, and you see, you know, you've seen a lot of hiring by big companies. you know, manhattan is a br
into a 2004 nail biter. look at the polls in ohio, today barack obama is almost exactly where george w. bush was in the polls in ohio 8 years ago. look at the job approval ratings, barack obama's job approval rating is almost exactly where george w. bush's approval rating is. the only thing looking better for romney at this point is obama is worse off in the polls. george w. bush had a 1.5 percentage-point lead going into election day and right now it is even. >> greta: rick what is the best thing politically that governor romney is looking at right now, when looks at this and what is the best thing politically president obama is looking at when they look at what is winding down between now and tuesday? >> romney looks at the number among independents and also looks at the possibility of building this national lead and i think closing on the economy. closing with what works for him in terms of making the argument he is the candidate of change. he has to hope for a big weekend to turn things around a little bit in terms of the close and i think president obama has to feel good about how thing
. that alone is a big step forward. >> or on george bush. >> but that is out there on the internet. you can find that. this is a thing where i agree at the margins, president obama looking presidential. this is good for him. at the same time, hurricane are a better opportunity to make a mistake and hurt yourself than do lasting good. freezing the campaign in place, i'm not sure is beneficial to obama. romney had legitimate momentu momentum. we may not get polling for a few days. it will suspend polls to create the panic needle park for people in this room. they won't get a cross tab fixed. that is an issue. >> we get a poll a second around here. >> the national gallup poll that we get once a month. romney is a slight lead here. you have ohio. the latest rasmussen report has romney ahead. the real clear has president obama with lead in ohio. there is another ohio poll out today that is a tie. 49. it seems like president obama and romney were tied according to many polls. obama people claim he had a lead in ohio. changed the dynamic on the ground. >> we now have a rasmussen poll, the first, i

that this is the kind of stuff i believe the president has had to endure. george bush never had somebody saying that the only reason why x, y or person supports you because you're both white. that's the extreme ridiculousness of these comments. >> let's talk about the hurricane sandy situation. obviously this is going to come crashing through the east coast, including potentially new yoark. what is your view now about where we are with the information? >> this is the time people should be putting plans together. they should be securing things in their lawn, they should be preparing to live without power if power outages happen. this is a very, very serious storm. we have seen the last two years what a hurricane and ice storm last october can do to our communities and everybody should take it seriously. >> it's also an interesting political situation in the sense it's so close to an election. if the federal government is deemed not to have prepared people properly for this and it becomes another mini katrina situation, it could be literally an election wrecker for the president. conversely, if h
's boss, george herbert walker bush, has endorsed mitt romney all along, and frankly, when you take a look at colin powell, you have to wonder ether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he's got a slightly different reason for preferring president obama. >> what reason would that be? >> well, i think when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being president of the united states, i applaud colin for standing with him. >> with me now is newark mayor and obama supporter, cory booker. i watched you this morning. you seemed to be slightly biting your lip about this, but a lot of people have been getting very angry because they say whichever way john sununu tries to wriggle off the hook on this, i asked him the question, he gave a blunt answer. i asked him to clarify it, he gave a sort of blunter second answer. leaving no real wriggle room at all. the guy was saying, without any doubt, that the reason that colin powell, a four-star retired general, one of the great statesmen of modern america, the reason he has voted for barack obama is because of the color of his

with some of the language and so forth and back away but he was pretty close to george w. bush. president bush felt that billy graham made a tremendous difference in his life in a personal way in terms of his faith in helping rescue his life. i think he was pretty close to president george w. bush, as well. is not spoken a lot in terms of campaign literature but i think there has been some issues out there among evangelicals and some skepticism about governor romney's mormon faith and i think billy graham's blessing is an important signal that it is ok to vote for a mormon. there have been full page ads and so forth. i think that is a very important thing in terms of the romney folks for billy graham to give that signal. host:rob christensen is with us. he is talking to us from raleigh and you can read more of his writings at news observer.com. we want to get more input and conversation going with some of our viewers and listeners. in order to do that, pick up the phone or send us a message -- we have a special line for folks calling from north carolina -- you can also send us e-mails --
on defense and more than the pentagon says we need. $25 trillion tax cuts would make president george w. bush look like a banker. he must have been asleep at the switch. you said like jerry mcguire "show me the money." you are the business guy. see me back after the election. who can take you seriously? here is my budget although it is not. see me about it after the election. the reason is there are only three options. if you want to repeal tax exemptions you have to cut the tax exemptions on the middle- class and governor romney says he will raise those taxes. or you can do what they have always done in just let the deficit explode again. when the economy goes it'll be a problem. or you could just gut the federal budget. gut funding for education. gut the student loan program. i spent $3 billion of your money to separate the human genome. he know how much economic activity it has generated? $790 billion. barack obama wants to raise it. they want to cut its. one thing they have not disavowed is they intend to cut medicaid by 33% over 10 years and get back to the state of ohio. medicaid provid
the same amount of people looking for work as when george bush was president. left presidency, we would have a 10.6 unemployment rate. it's far worse than it looks. >> gretchen: what about this u 6 unemployment rate being 14.6% for october. what's u 6? >> that is everyone who is looking for work part timers, all the people in the workforce rather than just eliminating a lot of people who simply stopped looking. the u-6 some people think it's the real unemployment rate. i mean, i don't think there is any perfect number to read this and we have always used u-3. u-6 i think tells you a little more these days about what's going on in the economy. >> gretchen: if you don't have a job it's 100% unemployment rate so it's all relative. >> that's right. >> gretchen: adjusted unemployment rate unemployment rate of labor force equal to january of 2009 when president obama came. in would actually be 10. a%, correct? >> i think 10.5, 10.6, yeah. very high. you have a bunch of people coming that the market every month that have to be met. i think it's 120,000. certainly it's just stagnation. last yea
organized campaigns that we've seen in recent memory was the 2004 george w. bush campaign. karl rove engineered a very impressive microtargeting effort, where they started to integrate people's consumer preferences, with their voting data, to try to more precise, so instead of just saying ok, we're going to target everyone that we know is, say, you know, a latino woman, you can actually individually start to target people based on what kind of car they drive or what kind of cereal they eat, all kind factors from when you fill out surveys or that kind of thing. the obama campaign did that even more impressive in 2008 and they've been building on that ever since, so they've built a formidable, digital integrated data targeting effort that they have put together with this vast network of field offices on the ground, and neighborhood teams and volunteers and through facebook and everything else. so they know practically who all of their voters are. the millions and millions of people that they expect or hope they can drive out to the polls to vote for obama. >> molly ball is a staff writ
in a presidential campaign >> think of george w. bush, and campaigning for mitt romney. it would be all over the place. what is this former president doing campaigning? lou: think about what difference in history is if eisenhower is campaigning for nixon in 1960. >> exactly, and we have seen that our former presidents, maybe with the exception of jimmy carter, who every once in awhile stick a needle into somebody's back, but basically even carter hasn't gone and the campaign trail in favor of aristocratic and it. lou: a lot of journalists trying to catch up with anne klein reporting on the machinations of clinton, the secretary and her legal team trying to match your reporting. her role, the president's -- the former president's role in taking responsibility for benghazi, then stepping back from it, leaving her in a heightened, elevated, if you will, memory, at least, those who follow politics, but taking effectively no responsibility. the president's stepping forward. what is going on here? >> and the president was asked today, i believe, about this benghazi think. he said, as i said to my
of president george w. bush bush's service in the alabama national guard popped up in the last couple days, last couple of weeks of the election. in 2000, there were reports of a dui arrest that bush had in connecticut a couple decades before the. in both of those cases, they didn't really move many votes. southern ocean of the october surprise is something that can completely alter a presidential contest really hasn't done that that much. >> host: right. we both noted example that george w. bush. he won. do we have evidence that an october surprise really swayed -- sways voters to? >> guest: eyesight a couple of examples in that article. it's not necessarily the presidential level but let's take a look at some of the races farther down about happening around the country right now. in indiana, the senate candidate richard mourdock looked like he was slightly ahead of democrats joe donnelly going into the final debate between the two men. in that debate, mourdock made some comments about rape that were taken, well, that were able to be used in a democratic campaign ad. those comments have d
this state twice. in 2,000 it went to george w. bush. but in two thour four it went to john carry. the president got a nine point victory in 2008. so we are a toss up state. the polls go back and forth forth. >>> it's difficult to determine who is going to win this state. host: how do residents vote on election day? guest: there is not early voting but tr is absentee ballots which have you to sign a form saying you're not going to be available on voting day to come to the polls. traditionally polls are open from 7:00 to 7:00, some are open until 8:00 p.m. on election day. we have one of the highest voter turnouts in the country. other stratist cal facts are that we are one of the least tax states in the nation, the least stack state actually. we have no income tax, no sales tax. both the democrat and republican candidates will campaign on that issue pledging that they will not have an income tax or sales tax. our two governor candidates are running on that issue as a matter of fact. host: and talk about the recount laws that are in the state of new hampshire. is it possible that t
a george bush at the light. i have been accused of being a liberal partisan. i have been accused--depends what page you open up to. i had a guy who accused me of being biased against the bush administration because i described what his clothes were on page 2. he didn't go any further than page 2. that is the frustration. hopefully people will put their politics aside and read the book and try to figure out what really happened in that critical period. >> shameless plug of this book reads like a tom clancy novel. is impossible to put down. the style, kurt goes from one simultaneous event and geographic location to another, in the same context so you have a real sense of what is happening everywhere. in the book there is, for those who are apologists on either side there seems to be a lack of moral judgment or condemnation for approval and you have mentioned you have been accused by both sides of being biased. did you intend to relate just the fact or did you intend to communicate some judgment about what happened? >> one thing i say in the introduction is i have no faith in opinio
the republican party has blocked it over and over again. george bush put forward a bill that the republican party would not even consider. we of 11 million people live -- living in the shadows were working hard. we need to provide them a path to citizenship without putting a disadvantage to people of waited in line. for young people who were brought here as little children, we need to make sure their dreams and aspirations of a realistic chance of being rely so they can contribute in the communities again. >> one minute left. just a 42nd recap you like to leave the voters with. >> i been ranked as one of the most independent congressman in the united states. take a look at the chicago tribune. they have said dole is the clear choice. frankly i am able to bridge the political divide and reach across the aisle. i have done that for the past 22 months. it being on front on israel issues, being a leader. i am a social moderate. certainly my record stand up for that. -- stands up for that. we've seen this past two years of congress that has put fighting ahead of comprehensive collaboration. we need so
reinforce or under d undermine that narrative. in the case of george w. bush in 2006 with hurricane katrina, he campaigned as basically a compassionate conservative. but his actions during the whole katrina mess proved that he was otherwise. >> because you have that lasting image of president bush and when he said that thing about his fema director, way to go, brownie, or whatever he said. that sticks in people's minds to this day. >> right. that would be a defining sound bite of his entire presidency. granted, it's unfair, but that's what sticks in people's minds. >> in your mind, has president obama made the right move, wrong move? what do you think? >> i think he has made the appropriate move here. he hasn't been too over. that's the key here. you can't be overtly political in how you respond to these kinds of disasters. he obviously will accrue some benefits because he's acting aas commanders in chief are supposed to act and help people on a broad basis. as the remarks of governor christie of new jersey proved, this is a -- he gets bipartisan support out of this disaster. that has to he
in the last few months of george w. bush's tenure. we've lost some manufacturing jobs. you know, we've had a governor who has had a pretty progressive agenda that hasn't allowed jobs to grow. but i do think that people in wisconsin know that things are getting better that we're turning a corner. our unemployment rate is a little lower than nationally. and i think they understand that this country's headed in the right direction. we're on the right track. we came from a big hole. the president has dug hymn out of this -- himself out of this whole. host: your job and the obama campaign's job more difficult because of the reerecall? guest: i don't think it has an impact one way or the other. host: and so this is mike tate of the wisconsin democratic party joining us and talking about issues when it comes to wisconsin. we track one more call. ohio republican line good morning. caller: yes. i love how obama has taken such pride in saying that he has created so many jobs. there are so many people that are having to work part time jobs or working two -- temporary jobs whatever trying to make ends
reaches its apex, president george w. bush not out campaigning for mitt romney. but rather speaking at an investment conference in the cayman islands. organizers declined comment. tickets, $4,000 apiece. >> oh, my goodness. >> sir richard branson said to be there as well. >> there you go. "the charleston daily mail." west virginia still feeling impacts of sandy in the form of snow. in some counties, 80% of residents have no power. and in places three feet of snow cover the ground. this must be just unbelievable. forest crews and fema have been working around the clock with chain saws to carve up fallen trees but more are falling under wet, heavy snow. >> "the washington post," the ipad mini goes on sale. apple expects to sell 1 million this weekend. put that in perspective, apple sold 5 million units of the iphone 5 in september. almost two inches smaller than the full-size version, but 330 bucks more expensive than competitors' model. >> 200 in the first day just to halperin. >> halperin. he hoards apple products. he's a hoarder. >> you never know. >> mika, we should point out one
advisor to george w. bush. nice to see you long time. doing well. you're going to help us look at the electoral college and we hear it's about ohio can't make it to the white house without winning ohio. >> there are other ways, but in order to get to ohio first, you have to get to three and then two. the three states that you have to get to before you get to ohio are florida, north carolina, and-- are indiana, north carolina and virginia, three historically republican states that president obama won and then you've got to win florida, which has 29 electoral college votes, you get those four states, indiana nobody considers to be a battle ground, if romney gets the three states, florida, north carolina, virginia, then he's set up for, you know, going to ohio, those three states look pretty good. north carolina out of contention, florida looks pretty good. you know, florida four years ago, they had the ballot requests four years ago in florida, the democrats had a 7 point advantage, 45% of the absentee ballot requests, 37 for republicans-- 46-37. this time the republicans have a
/11 victims to trumpet the george w. bush political agenda. that is wrong. it a fended -- offended many of the survivors and first responders, and i felt i needed to stand up. >> moderator: governor? thompson: i never questioned her pate lottism, i -- patriotism, i questioned her judgment. every person from wisconsin voted for it, including nancy pelosi. everybody voted for it except 22 individuals. 95% voted for it. it bothers me because i was there helping out. and if you talk to george pataki and mayor giuliani, they said i was a force of nature because i was up there so often helping people get things. and congress didn't give the appropriation she's talking about from things, people didn't get it. that's true, they didn't. but it wasn't because we didn't try. the federal government -- she's the congress, they didn't appropriate the money. that's why they didn't get the treatment they did. plus, they put a restriction in as to who could get it. we had to interpret the federal law. if we could have given more money out to more people, we would have. and talking about her judgment, no
